(Wolf Sirens #1)
by Tina Smith
The Mystical Bond, the Fatal Allure ... of Hunter & Prey
Misunderstood seventeen year old Lila Crain unwillingly moves to the foreboding town of Shade, prepared to face her punishment - Shade High. But she can't begin to anticipate the life-altering events that lie in wait for her.
The dark and charismatic Reid has a wolfish grin and amber eyes that would make any girl blush and he has his sights set on the new girl in school.
Reid's stunning friends - including icy top dog Sam - invite Lila into their clique. Suspicious, yet flattered by their attention she answers the intriguing call like a moth to a flame.
Thrillingly introduced to the local nightlife by the enigmatic group, Lila finally feels like she belongs. But her newly found friendships threaten to turn sour when she unwittingly develops feelings for the leader's off-limits boyfriend, Sky.
Tensions rise further when a quirky local named Cresida warns Lila to stay away from the clique at all costs.
Undeterred, she is irresistibly drawn to uncover the truth behind their mysterious lifestyle.
Lila unwittingly starts off a chain of events that will forever alter fate for both hunter and hunted as she learns they have been waiting for her...
Inspired by the legend of the femme fatale goddess, Artemis, Wolf Sirens is a compelling gothic masterpiece of paranormal romance.
Forbidden, Fever, Night Fall, Dusk in Shade and soon to be released Dawn in Shade - all continue the tale of Lila Crain, the heroine with the chip on her shoulder, on an epic paranormal journey in which forbidden love threatens to destroy the underworld.
3.5 out of 5 stars
I love to read anything paranormal, especially vampires and werewolves, so when the author asked if I would like to review her series of books and I saw that it was about werewolves, I was IN!
Right from the start, the cover lured me in, begging me to open this book and start reading. I think it is an absolutely beautiful cover – so dark and intriguing. Then, if that did not seal the deal, the preface gives the reader a detailed account of one of the many myths surrounding the town of Shade and werewolves. It is such a beautiful myth – ancient Greek gods, forbidden love and wolves. So after all that, I settled in and began reading what was to be a promising good book – I was not disappointed.
This was a beautiful story of the hunter and the hunted and the love that was forbidden between the two. It is the story of one girl’s discovery of what her destiny truly is meant to be and the journey there is full of heartbreak, anger, love and anguish. Ms. Smith has such an elegant way of writing, the words flowed so smoothly. I became emotionally invested in these characters, in fact the ending brought tears to my eyes – I really did not expect it. The ending also left the door open for the next book in this engrossing series, and I can’t wait to begin the second leg of this emotional and action filled series.
I am rating this story 3.5 out of 5 stars only because there were a few issues with punctuation and the repeat of information at times, but these were minor and did not take away from the story whatsoever. I believe this is the author’s first novel, so with that being said, for a first, she did a really good job!
